sun calls seed by name
there can be just one response

green reaches upward

          for heaven on earth

          Thanks for playing, Celestine.

        once again
        dive from hope’s high cliff
        find my wings

        Very nice, Cheryl. I like the brevity of your poem. It transmits so much with so little. Good job. πŸ™‚ Alice
